STEM Tennis Curriculum & Activities
for Grades 3-5 & 6-8

Enhance students’ STEM skills with our STEM tennis activities



"I think the curriculum is perfect for the target audiences. I thought the activities were engaging and think kids would not only learn alot about tennis and STEM applications, but have a lot of fun participating. This is a class that I think would reflect well and kids would be excited to go home and tell their parents about it. I really loved the tennis facts and STEM jobs listed for each module. I think it would bring a really great awareness for how someone could pursue a career in tennis and how the STEM applications transfer to real world knowledge. The courses were easy to follow and would be a huge benefit to schools and tennis programs!"

We’ve approached each module with a baseline that volley’s equally between engaged learning and physical activity. Students are served with several aspects of STEM, but none are over their heads. We lob lessons at them such as:

  • Measuring the force used in each tennis motion using Newton’s Second Law. 
    • Bonus: Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Training System is included in our kit!
  • Drawing and classifying lines and angles to understand the exact dimensions of the court better. 
  • Comparing values and expressions to fully understand scoring in the game and how it differs from any other sport through the popular theory of its correlation to an analog clock. 

There’s no fault for giving students the advantage of using STEM Tennis to further their 21st-century skills and science literacy.

"This is awesome! I love the integration and the awareness it brings to the environment of the sport and the sport itself."

No experience or previous knowledge of golf is required to teach this curriculum. Our STEM Sports Tennis manual includes all of the necessary information about the sport and the science behind it to properly implement the curriculum.

Each manual contains content for a minimum of 16 hours of instruction that includes healthy, physical activity. All of the supplies in the kit are non-perishable and are designed to last for several years. Some supplied items may need to be replaced over time.

STEM Tennis includes activities and lessons surrounding force used in each tennis motion using Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach Training System, measuring the dimensions of a court, and much more.

Yes, tennis lessons are designed for use in both indoor and outdoor settings. However, an outdoor environment (i.e. tennis court, black top, etc.) is recommended for ease of implementation.

Yes, digital resources are available for all of our STEM Sports kits by visiting the digital tools link found in your curriculum manual.

Each curriculum has eight lessons aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and/or Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and/or National Standards for K-12 Physical Education.
